Sangria = Another word for Gin and Juice?

I'm going to a Memorial Day pool party, and I'm planning on making this
peach-rosemary white sangria. Problem is, I need to buy gin and I don't know anything about gin. Please help!

I understand that different brands have different flavors depending on which botanicals they use. Also, the recipe specifies London dry gin. Wikipedia says that has to do with how it's distilled, but how do I know which gin is London dry? Gin-drinkers of Metafilter: what would be a good gin to complement the peach-rosemary flavors of this sangria?
(I do think the herbaceous qualities of the gin are important to the integrity of the drink and what I'm going for with it, so suggestions of other alcohol to use are welcome, but I'm really looking for gin recommendations. Thanks!)
